Each year, IPSF, in partnership with the Irvine Unified School District (IUSD), presents the Donald Bren Honors Concert. Students are selected by audition and all performers demonstrate exceptional ability and commitment. Nearly 700 of Irvine's finest young musicians in grades 5-12 participate in this memorable event and perform before an audience of more than 1,500 distinguished guests and family members.
An Award Winning Program
Over the past 34 years, more than 20,000 students have participated in this dynamic performance opportunity and all proceeds go to maintaining IUSD’s award-winning music program. The students in Irvine schools are fortunate to have a community that values and invests in music education. Without your generous support, this unique experience for these aspiring and talented students would not be possible.
